What is multitrack recording?

Recording songs is not a simple thing to do!
Usually a song is composed by more than one part, like drums, bass, guitar and vocals.

Sometimes it’s also necessary to record more than a single track for each single instrument or vocal.
Multitrack recording software is conceived to allow musicians to record multiple tracks (nowadays close to unlimited) and combine them together to create a song.
